Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

It is about time we recognize the truth. We have been constantly called as
the most elitist of the GNU/Linux distribuitons, and this is true.

So, I propose we make clear that we are indeed '1337 and rename the
debian/rules file to debian/rulez.  Anyone who cannot see the benefits of
the added c00lness effect such a change would bring is not fit to be One Of

The transition from the old to the new system can be easily performed by
including a test in dpkg-source, so that a debian/rules -> debian/rulez
symlink is added to the source deb if the debian/rules file is not present
and the debian/rulez file is.  It should also automatically call the
atention of any lamerz that try to build a package without renaming the
rules file to rulez.

I also propose we add the following target to the standard debian/rulez
target list:

m00:  should display an ASCII-art of a stoned cow, in deference of the s1kr3t
      bovine powers behind the Debian packaging system, and the magic smoke of
      Holy Cow that is portrayed in our logo.
